You Make Me Smile

Happy Saturday! We had the twins all day today. So I am exhausted. But they are so much fun! I have a couple pictures below. I haven't posted any for a while. I had started a card earlier this week and finally got it completed. I've been wanting to use this MFT Mesmerizing Mandala die for a while now.


The Mandala Was cut from a pastel scrap of paper that I had sitting on my desk. I really liked the variation in color. So I mounted it on the black card stock. I used the MFT You Trio die and popped it up using blue fun foam. The sentiment is from the MFT All About You stamp set inked with a pastel variation ink pad and die cut with MFT Essential Fishtail Sentiment Strips. This is also popped up with foam tape. I added a heart from MFT Blueprints 32 in the center and coated it with Dimensional Magic so it shiny. To finish it off I added the pearls is some of the rounded areas of the mandala. I'm going to use this for a Valentine this year. I am entering these challenges:

So to close out tonight here are a couple pictures I took of the twins this week when I volunteer at their Head Start class on Wednesday. Valerie is riding a hobby horse and Arthur is bouncing on a big ball. He was having such a great time.



Thanks for stopping by today. Hope your weekend is wonderful. We are supposed to get a little nasty weather tonight. We'll see if it's snow or ice. Take care!

omgosh! the twins are growing so fast! are they gorgeous!!!!

love the card. the die is stunning and the paper you used really is great. perfect putting it on a black background. it's simply gorgeous!!!

i'm with you on the weather. expected 3-6" here. i sure hope not.
my garage door started giving me trouble yesterday in the middle of what looked like a blizzard but was just the wind blowing the snow around. it (the door) didn't want to come down all the way. drove me nuts for awhile. finally got it down always something.

hope whatever you got cold wise goes away. seems lately it's like mojo.. it disappears for a week or 2 and then comes back. such is the "winter" life.

stay warm, stay safe, stay well. prayers you do all that!

have a fabulous week.

hugs :)
